Hot Violin Girls – Toxicity

Thursday, September 24, 2009

People with Violins are cool. Hot girls covering System of a Down songs with violins.. are awesome.

Update: I decided to do a little extra research for those of you who are lazy but curious to see more of these girls:

Jennifer Lynn, Electric Violin; www.jenniferviolynn.com
Christine Wu, Electric Violin; www.christine-wu.com (I think)
Meytal Cohen, Drums; www.meytalcohen.com

  2. these girls are great. as good as the violinists are ive seen better. not hating or anything but they could be better. as for the drummer? dear god! she is incredible with the double bass pedal getting the odd beats perfect. and her fills are, though not very hard, they are accurate (like the song) and very well done.

    over all an extremely amazing performance.

  4. it’s in 6/8 mate not 4/4. and the use of hemiola makes some of it quite tricky

  5. Maybe I am not used to electric violins, but it looks weird. And from the one angle it doesn’t look like there is a double kick. I dunno maybe its just in my head.

  6. There is def no double kick on the drums. They all look bored to tears. Why was this filmed in a parking garage and why could none of these girls come up with more than ten dollars to spend on a wardrobe for this thing? Whatever. Be impressed, I guess.

  11. I’m more impressed with the drum beat.

  12. While I liked this, and appreciate that these girls are much better musicians than myself… I can’t help but think this is just a half assed version of the band, Rasputina. Rasputina were two hot chicks that played distorted cellos, and a drummer–they also played original music, and worked the whole victorian dominatrix wardrobe style. I don’t know if they still exist, but when I saw them in the ’90s it was pretty cool. Oh, and did I mention there were vocals, too? I mean, vocals in pop rock… kind of key.

  14. Holy shit… so awesome… haters can hate because they hate themselves for not being able to do anything half this cool… but this is awesome.

  15. I am impressed, go on with the sparkling music you make. Love and greetings Ruud

  16. One of the chicks is playing the guitar part and the other is playing the vocal harmony. As far as complaining about vocals shuzup. It’s a cover and people are allowed to make it there own, post your own vid if you can do better. As far as complaining about double kick, if she did it a single beat then even more props that’s an odd time signature. Very good job imo! Keep it up!

  17. Look at me I’m another one of the idiots who posted above me who doesn’t know a damn thing about music or talent but I’m still going to say that this was mediocre at best, yeah they can do better, I can’t but they totally can.
    I’m a dumb asshole who will criticize anything no matter how awesome it is! I! AM! THE INTERNET!

  18. Awesome!

  19. Beautiful…

  20. I’d wager that as of this post, the girls in the video have more degrees than the sum of all the people that posted, myself included. Research them, peeps, these girls each are heavy artillery.

  21. Wow… very very not bad on a few counts. 🙂

  22. Holy F… playing violin and headbanging at the same time?? YOU ROCK

  23. They definitely do not look bored to me….

    Comment by Joe — April 25, 2010 @ 10:46 pm

  24. I’m sorry, love the song, and I love the cover, but is it bad that I just can’t get over the fact that the chick playing drums is holding her sticks COMPLETELY wrong?
